The section of pavement on Henshall Road from the Drive to the First House on the left going int o the Village

Reported via desktop in the Footway category anonymously at 10:29, Thu 10 November 2022

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3953399.

The section of footpath on Henshall Road from the Drive to Ashbrook Road has a number of obstructions preventing on the full width of the path being utilised. This makes it difficult and dangerous to people passing especially with prams, young children and dogs. It forces people to step into the busy road on. Starting at the Drive: 1. Multiple plants/weeds growing out of the wall at head height reducing the width of the pavement. 2. Weeds/detritus/ mud along the edge of the path. This prevents two prams passing safely. 3. Hedges from residences on Springbank extend over the footpath at head and shoulder height. This applies to all but the last property. They have been trimmed but not level with the wall preventing people passing safely with prams etc. I had a near miss with my child's pram as the path is now not wide enough for two prams to pass. One of these hedges has 15mm thorns which is dangerous from a health and safety perspective. Eyes are at risk and it is well documented that scratches from such plants can subsequently become infected. This footpath is adjacent to the bust main road through Bollington and is well walked. Please address these issues.
